Description

This is dedicated class for getting the value of, and setting, the various "master switches" within the software. Since this is meant as an easy way to get the values of master switches, most of the methods are static.
The main usage will be geoMaster::is('setting'). If the situation makes it easier, can use object notation as well like: $master = geoMaster::getInstance(); if ($master->setting) {} //can also set value using object notation $master->setting=true;
